MOMables Week Lunch 2 The Airport Sandwich

The next lunch in this week's MOMables menu is called The Airport Sandwich.  Laura, of MOMables, explains how she was stuck at the airport with her kids and this ended up being the mix of odds and ends available to her in a pinch.  *note - The original recipe called for cheese to be added to the sandwich but my girls weren't sure about it.  A tip, don't send in a main entree that the kids might not eat.  Save something new for when they are home and have the option of something else.  You don't want them to not eat and have a cloudy brain for the rest of the school day.
Our main entree is The Airport Sandwich.  This is a peanut butter and apple sandwich on whole grain white bread.  We used Peanut Butter and Company's Cinnamon Raisin Swirl (OMGOODNESS!) and very thinly sliced apples.  It's like fall inside of a sandwich.  We used our Wonder Bread Sandwich press to make our own "uncrustable" sandwich.

Our vegetable side is red and yellow bell peppers slices and purple cauliflower.  The girls were very excited to try this new vegetable tonight (I think the purple sold them) and said it would be great in their lunches.  We added a small container of ranch salad dressing for dipping.

Our fruit side is the apples in the sandwich and De Anjou pear slices.

Finally, our dairy/dessert is Chobani Champions orange vanilla Greek yogurt.  We added some mini chocolate chips.  This is Molly's favorite way to eat this flavor.  Orange and chocolate = yum!

This is what the MOMables menu for today looked like.

ps - Easy Lunchboxes are available again!  They are great for the WHOLE family.  Proof: here's Daddy's lunch for tomorrow.  Pork steak, sweet potato, edamame and grilled peppers.

  1. Sounds Delicious! I recently started following your blog after I created my own about making lunches for my daughter. How do you make those boxes with the amazon products? I have tried to do them as well and have had no luck!
